|From the late 1800s to the early 1900s, trolley cars were growing and expanding all over the country creating new and exciting ways for people to travel. In 1902, Salem, NH was silent as the first trolley car bell rang from the distance signaling that times were about to change. Salemís role quickly grew by being in the center of the Greater Lowell, Lawrence, Haverhill, and Nashua communities.
Less than eight weeks after the introduction of the new trolley lines, The Hudson, Pelham & Salem Railways (HP&S) opened Canobie Lake Park as a pleasure resort to increase the excitement of their business. Its botanical garden atmosphere inspired visitors to dress up in their finest clothing to enjoy a day of leisure with their family and participate in attractions, which at that time were limited to: canoeing, sporting events, the Circle Swing, picnics, and the Penny Arcade.
